Sadly I missed the original posting but this caught my eye. I just received
notification of a lay off on Monday. As I am searching within my company and
outside, I am having one heck of a time with titles. I have had so many
through the years. My current official one is Engineering Project Manager,
however we call ourselves Information Engineers and that's what our
department is called. It's quite a trick trying to job hunt in our industry!

I'm sure this has probably been discussed and if so, slap me on the wrist to
head to the archives, but if anyone has a list of titles to try to search
by, I'd appreciate it.
